A Present.....

For me. From me!

My little parcel here has traveled farther than I have for the moment. It was mistakenly sent to Cambodia.

But it managed to find it's way to my home. It arrived in a cute little box:

This was in the box:

A necklace which has a portion of a print of from the Audubon Society Nature Encyclopedia. I was all over that when I first saw it!

The creator, Erica. has a fabulous shop on Etsy. She has all sorts of neat and interesting pieces.

After I finished checking out my new purchase, I started to paint. I am finally liking where this piece is going.

It was way too yellow before. I couldn't seem to add any depth. It felt wrong and I just couldn't see why. I think I have it now. When it dries a bit, I will go in and clean it up a bit so it is not so muddy.

I also worked on a new cardigan:

It is called Sunkist Cardi by Kirsten Kapur. It is worked from the shoulders down on a circular needle as one piece. I am a huge fan of one piece and little seaming!

I also enjoyed watching Rebel play with his toy today:

Well that is cool! I've never uploaded video before.

Napoleon had a great time all in his own right:

This is why I go through so many mouse things.

He likes the sound things make when they hit the ground, like I don't know,dropping my keys behind the stove for example :(

Now you are all up to date about what happens at chez Jocelynn's. lol. I hope you all have a great week end!

Need a New Cyclopes

I've been home sick for two days. I don't know what's wrong. I'm thinking just a bad mix of allergies and a flu bug. Maybe my body is telling me to slow down for a little bit? At any rate, I am feeling miles better today. I kept water down which I believe to be a good sign. So it is back to work tomorrow :D
I have had the pleasure of my crack medical team to supervise me:

Mom! You all right?

Hey Napoleon! What should we do with her?

Hmmmm. Let's just observe and report for now.

Hey Rebs? You think this will affect dinner time?

Not sure Napoleon. If she doesn't come to at 17h58, we will poke her with a stick.

I did come to. I have also enjoyed a nice cup of coffee this morning. That is when I realized I should be hunting for a new favourite coffee cup.

I have had Cyclopes now for a few years. I'm concerned he won't be around for much longer.

Might have to rechristen him Chip.

He is the best! He holds two cups of coffee. This means less trips up on Saturday mornings to that kitchen place. I will just have to keep my eyes open for a suitable replacement.

I was able to do quite a bit today. I settled on the sofa to watch some movies and work on a few projects:

I completed a large chunk out of my cross stitch:

It is called Colourful Night Cat, designed by Vivienne Powers. The pattern is from Cross Stitch Gold, Issue 22

I also finished my circle socks:

I've caught up on a lot of my favourite shows, Sanctuary and Spartacus; Blood and Sand mainly. Not bad for a sickie eh? Well, I'm off to watch Aeonflux and try to stay awake so I can sleep better tonight. Happy Wednesday all. :)
